it was a plaster replacement. the museum's director said the fundamental rules for visiting a museum have been forgotten. it is do not touch the works. okay. so anyway, it's happened before. i guess at the met museum here in 2010. a lady tripped. >> she was walking and she fell into a picasso. >> hey it happens. >> six-inch gash. >> it happens. that was an accident. she wasn't planning on it. he did something you shouldn't do. so i don't think -- >> she just fell down and gashed it. can you imagine? >> we'd love to know, talk us to on facebook and let us know if there's anything you've ever done that you just went, oh, my god! >> i'd love to know. >> have you? >> of course not. >> you know what is more fun than anything else? >> what? >> one ton of fat. 15 tons of, a ball of congealed -- don't you love that
word? congealed fat has been removed from a london sewer. >> so this is what it looks like. you know when you pour grease or something down the sink because you are too lazy to put it in a can and throw it in the garbage? >> yes. >> in london, all of this congealed together. everyone is dumping of grease. and it turned into a big blob the size of a double decker bus. they dubbed it the fat burg. it's blobby and oozy and it reminded us of the blob. remember? >> that's the first horror movie i ever saw. >> 1958. take a look. >> every one of you watching this screen, look out. because soon, very soon, the most horrifying monster menace ever conceived will be oozing into this theater. >> i want to see it. >> the blob.

it's all about your health. if you're still kicking it. as long as the lord has me here. if i'm sick and burdened and i can't enjoy the beautiful things in life that -- then i would rather go a better place. >> i wouldn't want to outlive -- >> where there's no blob. >> i don't think i'd want to outlive everybody from my era who understood my movies my music, the things i loved -- careful. you want to discuss things with people. >> you know, we -- we have to quit today. we have to quit talking early because we have got a room full of little kids who have got a lot to say. we're excited to meet them. >> this one has a youtube video nearly 7 million hits. she's only 13 years old. is she the next big thing? a live performance from madi lee. >> she's not the only young star here today from a pint-sized preacher to a budding chef. inspiring kids who are making a difference.

she created it to help women with disabilities and girls with disabilities realize their potential. >> and hannah chung is a diabetes awareness -- >> wong? what is it? >> chuong. >> don't confuse us. where is my "sorry" button. michael, let's start with you. you have your t-shirt on that says mikey's run. when you were younger, 8 years old, you had an illness and lost some of your limbs. tell us about what happened. >> when i was about 8 years old, like you said, i have an immune disease called cgd. i don't know the full name, it's complicated. meaning like soil or dirt gets in my blood stream, oxygen will stop flowing through my body. i had dirt under my finger nail and started scratching it and the dirt got into it and basically the blood stopped flowing to my hands and feet and they turned black. after seven weeks in the hospital, i was released. and then a month later they had to amputate my hands and feet because they were no longer working.
>> i've never heard of that. it's very rare, isn't it? >> my brother has it, too. but, like, they already knew about it for him because it happened to me first so they were able to stop it. >> you do all kinds of things. >> besides charming women. >> yes, we know you're good at that, honey. >> you have prosthetic legs and you have this great run that helps benefit other amputees, right? >> yeah. >> we're really happy for all the things you're doing. let's move on to miss jordan. miss amazing. >> you did a beauty pageant yourself as a child. >> i've been doing beauty pageants since the age of 7. it wasn't something that i did like every two weeks. i wasn't obsessive about it. once a year. >> you were no honey boo boo. >> pageantry has taken an odd turn, but, yeah, it's just something i did once a year just to meet friends, public speaking skills, interview skills. yeah, it's just been a really beneficial thing. i wanted to provide that opportunity for girls with disabilities. >> it must be so uplifting for
them. tell us what that feels like to watch one of those pageants. >> when i first started the miss amazing pageant, i was 13 so i didn't realize the kind of impact it would make. now what keeps me going, keeps me inspired is just the girls who just completely transform or have that nice moment to realize their abilities instead of disabilities. >> feel valued for who they are. >> that's what everyone needs. >> look how cute hannah is sitting in her little chair. it's your turn. what do you do that's amazing? you have had diabetes since you were a little girl. >> since i was 3. >> yeah. >> what are you doing to raise awareness? >> well, we're doing walks. diabetes walks over the brooklyn bridge. and my cousins held a lemonade stand. >> great. >> to raise money. i'm not sure how much money they raised. >> we hear so much bad news

>> a pint-sized preacher. >> samuel green. but first, these messages. instead of refueled and focused, you're foggy and sluggish. it's that 2:30 feeling again. so how do you get your clear, alert feeling back? have a coffee... then another? do this instead. take one 5-hour energy. in minutes foggy and sluggish is gone... hello clear and alert. 5-hour energy. take it after lunch. be clear and alert for hours. >> with hotwire's low prices, we can afford to take more trips this year. hit the beach in florida... >> and a reunion in seattle. when hotels have unsold rooms, they use hotwire to fill them. >> so we got our four-star hotels for half price! >> men: ♪ h-o-t-w-i-r-e, hotwire.com. ♪ this is for you. ♪ [ male announcer ] bob's heart attack didn't come with a warning. today his doctor has him on a bayer aspirin regimen to help reduce the risk of another one.
so many wonderful kids today with strong and passion and talent. >> as parents we often wonder what our children will grow up to be and do and what we can do to nurture those talents or help our kids find them. >> how do you raise inspired kids? here with some advice are psychologist michelle borba, and bruce feeler, the author of "the secrets of happy families." >> it's feiler. >> once named father of the year, by the way. >> congratulations. >> i was, actually. >> my kids don't respect it, but it did happen. >> michelle, i mean, every parent, obviously, wants their kid to flourish. sometimes you see something that seems like your kid is good at. what should you do to sort of encourage him or her to -- >> the most important thing is we're going to tune into our kids and let them lead us. you are really looking to see, where is that child's passion lie? the new research is really showing us the right conditions
and the right parenting, we can really help stretch our kids to all of them shine a little brighter. that's what it's really all about. not having them win the pulitzer or the championship. >> it's not that they become celebrities. so that they become the finest little people they can be. >> and what you are doing is you'll look a little closer to figure out where his natural interests are. listen. these particular children, i'm sure while they were watching a tv show said i'm really upset about what happened in oklahoma. tune in to that. and then you can always ask a teacher at a parent conference, what are his strengths? what are his talents and then assess. a passion becomes an obsession with a child who is really talented. >> you can't stop them from doing it. we're going to have a little girl on in a little bit who can't stop singing and a little boy who can't stop preaching. they were born to do it. >> you have to be careful about pushing them. kid are funny. when you push them, they don't want to do the things they are meant to do. >> you can't decide when your child is -- i'm going to raise a talented child.
you have to make sure that your expectations are right. and some fabulous new research has been tracking these kids to discover, first, we have to be a champion. we've got to be a cheerleader. and support our own children. but second of all, the first teachers are absolutely critical for a child who is really talented. they have to be one who is child oriented and also fun. >> unfortunately sometimes that's not the case. >> you want a child who is well rounded as well. that means not only talented but a kid who is empathetic and can feel what is going on. >> there are a lot of things parents can do. >> you mentioned my book "the secrets of happy families." i spend a couple of years traveling around looking at families that work to see what i could learn. the single most surprising thing i learned is if you want to have inspiring children, tell inspiring stories about your own family. kids who know more about their family history have a higher belief that they can control the world. >> just makes sense. >> and a greater sense -- >> what if you don't have a great family story? >> even better. that's the point i want to make. you don't just want to tell the positive stories but maybe the not so good.
by being open, this has changed how i parent because i think my instincts were to only tell positive stories to kind of protect. now when you talk about pain, they become -- they get out of themselves and they relate to it. as you all know, i spent a year fighting cancer in my leg. i was on crutches. and what that did, i was worried it would traumatize my children. instead, they went running to the kid with the amputated leg on the playground or look at the rabbit in the kid's book that had crutches and they would reach out. so telling your own stories of your own struggles will actually help your children to become more empathetic. >> that's so smart. meredith viera once said, her husband has m.s., how has that affected your family? she said i raised more caring children. that's what it gave me. >> it stretches their empathy. and that's what you have here, three children who have such heart. heart is what opens it up. >> otherwise we're sort of basically selfish. we come out of the womb, me, mine, down, no. and we have to teach them, i'm
sorry. >> my bad. >> we've got to go. we could talk about it forever. we have some great kids. thank you. great to see you. her parents helped nurture her dreams of making it big. she's well on her way. tween singing sensation, madie lee is here to sing for us. >> and the 8-year-old who can get an entire church congregation on their feet. preacher samuel green is here.

what is it that you are searching for first? >> i'm always looking for personality because really that's what sets everyone apart from each other is someone who has a good personality and can show that to other people. it's not just a personality that when they're at home they like are really fun and -- >> it's got to be a natural one, doesn't it? >> i always beg for the right amount of confidence, though, mixed with a little dash of humility. >> that's not easy in a child who has been told all their life how fabulous they are also. >> the personality is what stands out the most. when you get a group of kids together, which one are you paying attention to? >> a lot of parents would wonder if they should go to a cold call and bring their kid or get an agent. what's the best approach do you guys think? >> the first step is to always try to find an agent. there are lots of different ways to find agents. you can send your child's picture in a mail. there are things like call sheets and backstages that have a list of agents and managers. just send in pictures of your child. just regular snapshots of your child and that's what's really
